Words vs images

God made words. He made words possible for man to both hear and speak. (His “Let there be light” introduced the awesome concept of articulate speech.) He spoke words to man, had man write words for other men, and was/is The Word. Man, by serious contrast, is the maker of pictures. Paintings, drawings, photography, and movies are all man-made, therefore should be scrutinized very, v-e-r-y carefully.

“You don’t have to live

life that strict!” “Relax, have fun.”

Why do you say these things? Who do you think I’m trying to please: myself or God?

With Whom do you think I want to “spend” eternity? Selfish souls (All in hell will be selfish.)

or with the one Whom, our Lord taught us to call, “Our Father”?
